Having been involved in a car accident in Cameroon, Samuel Eto’o is reportedly recovering.
Eto’o, who shone throughout his career with the likes of Barcelona, Inter Milan, and Chelsea, is said to have been hit from behind.
He was in Cameroon’s Nkongsamba-Littoral Region, on his way back from the country’s West Region.
Eto’o ‘s car is thought to have been destroyed, but the 39-year-old is reportedly in a safe state.
During his career, Eto’o won three Champions League titles, including one with Inter.
“The team was like a family, like a second home, all together, from the cooks to the warehouse staff,” he said earlier in that season. This was our secret.
A treble is also an exceptional memory because I lived it with amazing people.
“Of course, all my companions, but also Massimo Moratti, who in my life was like a second dad.”
“The forward went on to sign for Everton and added:” Honestly, one of the best decisions I’ve ever made was signing for Everton.
I had other deals, I had a chat with Liverpool, and I had other teams talking to me.
But when I talked to the manager of Everton [Roberto Martinez], it all changed, and I didn’t look at any of the other offers that I had.
When I met him, I fell in love with Everton straight away. I was inspired by his club plans and his game ideas … And that’s what brought me to Everton.
I was saddened to have only been at Everton for a brief time. I realized I was joining another major club when I arrived, no doubt.
At all of my previous clubs, I played a lot and managed to impress the fans while doing a lot of different things.
But at Everton, I don’t think the fans ever saw the real Samuel Eto’o, even though I played in a few games. I don’t think they saw the best of me there either, a little like at Chelsea.
